American Bandstand - Dolan Springs Other Claim to Fame

Okay this dates back to the 1950's so some of you might not get it but I 'll give you a little background. American Bandstand was a popular TV show hosted by the legendary master of ceremonies, Dick Clark. Broadcast from a studio in Philadelphia, PA it featured local teenagers dancing to music of the day, and each day a live performance by one of the current musical heartthrobs.
There were a few couples who were on the show everyday, for instance Bob and Justine. I was about 9 or 10 years old watching teenage Justine dancing and I thought she was so pretty and wore the keenest clothes. Her dance partner Bob was absolutely dreamy!
Fast forward to 2016 in Dolan Springs, AZ. This is where Justine lives and works as a real estate agent.

Mars Attacks!

Have you seen the movie Mars Attacks!?  It's just another one of Tim Burton's crazy masterpieces.  Martians land on earth, request a meeting with the President of the United States, and the insanity continues.  Some of the players are Jack Nicholson, Glenn Close, Annette Bening, Pierce Brosnan, Sarah Jessica Parker, Tom Jones, Rod Steiger and so many more.
What does this have to do with Dolan Springs?  I'll tell you.
In the movie you will see (briefly) a pink church.  That pink church is right here in Dolan Springs on Pierce Ferry Road.  Yes, we're almost famous!

If you want to watch the movie, you can get it through Amazon in an assortment of formats.
